...Have You Ever Been So Tired?

Most days we're all pretty tired. Okay, maybe not most of us.. maybe just the some of us who have sleeping issues and don't ever get an adequate amount of sleep. Anyway, most days are just kinda groggy, and then after my 42 shots of espresso (this may be a slight exaggeration), I'm good to go. Well today is different. Today I'm struggling on a whole new level of tired-struggleness (see, I'm making up words), and I know you're probably all wanting to know why.

Last night I went to bed at 10, and I think I fell asleep around 11:00pm. Not so bad. If I slept 11-6 that would be 7 hours, and I'm totally good with that. But unfortunately that didn't happen. No. I woke up, thinking it was morning and time to get ready for work. Stood up, stretched, yawned, went to the washroom and saw that it was REALLY dark out. Darker than it should be at 6:00am, so I headed back into the bedroom to discover that it was 12:00am... MIDNIGHT. I had only slept for ONE HOUR. What the heck, self?

I obviously crawled back into bed because I had 6 more hours of sleep, but my body was all 'it's time to wake up, lets go' and I had a super restless rest of my night. I was wide awake until 2:30m woke up at 3, went back to sleep at 4 and woke up at 5, and then passed out until 6. Oh, how I hated my alarm on a WHOLE new level this morning.

Anyway, I've been doing some really stupid things this morning whilst being really really ridiculously good looking tired.. so I'm going to share those things with you. Because sharing is caring, guys.

So... have you ever been so tired...

... that you put your pants on backwards? Nope? Me neither.

... that you push and push and push on a door that says 'pull' and wonder why it won't work?

... that you put your contacts in the wrong eyes?

... that you drop something and pick it up about 10x?

... that you see the Google sign today and think 'aww look at those cute little cartoon broccoli's' and wonder what holiday or random day of the year it is that Google is celebrating.. and then remember that it's St. Patrick's Day, and those are clovers, not broccoli.

Whatever, we can't all be perfect and know what clovers are at 6:30 in the morning when we've basically had zero sleep. And on that note, I'm going to roll out before I fall asleep on my keyboard and miss work.

I can't unsee broccoli now! haha

I drop my hairbrush no less than 10 times each morning - why is waking up so hard?!

HAHA cartoon broccolis... that's my favorite. One night I was so tired I fell asleep with my contacts in and then the next morning I put a new pair on (I wear dailies) OVER the ones already in my eyes. That wasn't horrible AT ALL.

Cartoon broccoli is probably the funniest thing I've heard all day. I hope you get a full nights sleep tonight!

In your defense... I can totally see broccoli too.

As someone from Ireland can I just say shamrock, not clover. Thank you.

And as for tired, I wear contacts too, one night I was so tired I went asleep with them on, woke up at stupid o'clock in the morning to discover I had been miraculously cured of shortsightedness because I could see!

Then realised I still had my lens in!!

That sleep pattern is my current state. Every night. And has been the past month. People tell me that's pregnancy doing it. I think it's a combination of pregnancy (obviously it does do weird shit to you) and anxiety from work. I'm asleep by 11pm, WIDE awake by 1am, back to sleep around 4am, awake at 6am for work. It's awful! And then it makes me so some of random things. I'm a culprit of contacts in the wrong eye Multiple times a week. You are not alone girl!!
